Uno embassy came second LAST YEAR in Class A in the Cowes Torquay race - the boat also won on at least one other occasion in 1975 entered by Don Shead of all people. Wan't Miss Embassy the turbine boat - I have a feeling the Nurse brothers had a lot to do with that boat?
A comparison has been made to the Malboro colours, and as an ex addict of William Morris's products I do get the irony - however the electronic things have nothing but nicotine in them and they are legal everywhere - even on a plane!
Edit: Gotchi got there before me - I was actually on the pontoon watching them come in after getting pretty much drowned in "Garmin" (more irony considering my new sponsors!). Not sure of the similarity between the boats though?
